    Hi all!

    Been lurking on these forums for about a week or two. :smile:
    In particular, I really appreciate how nice everyone is to newbies (like myself). This seems like a really friendly and helpful forum.

    After seeing a friend take amazing pictures in low light with his DSLR, I decided to take the plunge - going from a point-and-shoot (that's over 5+ years old, to boot) to an Olympus E-PL1... which I'm currently loving!

    Hopefully I can contribute one day, when I get my photography chops. I only learned what aperture is last week :rofl:

    I am however, a really fast learner :2thumbs:

    Starlabs, thanks for becoming a full fledged member, and please don't be hesitant to post some of your first photos. There's a wide array of photographic experience represented by the members here. Although I was an experienced photographer with film from the past, digital was brand new to me when I first came upon this wonderful community. I think I've left some of my first shots in the gallery here...I didn't realize that the camera had a "white balance" option!:biggrin:

    Very glad to have you here and I look forward to your involvement.:thumbup:

    It's surprising how many lurkers join this forum, at least you didn't lurk for long, so I guess we made a good impression :smile:.
    Welcome and enjoy.
